The same response is for ISO-2022-JP. The message doesn't imho use any unusual kanji for it to complain. This box is English Windows XP with SP2. The message: もう一度、今SJISで。写真を送れてくれてありがとう。 長老 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Just try to type some Japanese email.
Btw, you need to view this page using UTF-8 to see the Japanese properly.
have you tried tbird 1.5 beta 2? http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/releases/1.5beta2.html
Nope. Maybe I will try it. If I do I will report back if the problem goes away.
Version: unspecified → 1.0
I tried 1.5b2 and it complains too but it at least lets me "Send Anyway."
The warning is probably displayed due to a character in your sig -- the accented 'a' in "Václav" is not part of Shift-JIS nor ISO-2022-JP. I believe there is already be a bug from someone with this exact same issue, but I can't locate it.
Hmm, I think you are could be right. I did not realise that the encoding of the address and the encoding of the message is tied. Maybe it shouldn't be :)
OK, found the dupe. As I recommended there, using an identity such as "V. Haisman" when sending in Japanese would be a workaround. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 271508 ***
